Life in Greenland may seem like a completely foreign concept to some, and Ciril Jazbec, a photographer born and based in Slovenia, shows that in some ways it really is. In place of concrete roads and glass skyscrapers, Ciril Jazbec captures dogsled trails and modest homes. The lifestyle of locals are much more humble, not to mention in tune with the nature around them.

Quiet and contemplative, the work of Ciril Jazbec does concentrate on a more remote part of Northern Greenland. In a way, he documents a waning lifestyle. He writes, "Due to climate change, hunters struggle with shorter winters and unpredictable weather [while t]he young generation is moving to towns and has already abandoned a number of settlements."
